All recorded on my iPhone using the 4Track app within 3 nights spent at my friend's house (I was house sitting for her) in June 2014.
At this stage I'm literally a "bedroom" artist, because I made this album (and those preceding this) in, literally, a bedroom. But I don't get when people use the word "literally" as an unnecessary emphasizer, so, as a joke, I substitute words like "figuratively," "metaphorically," or, in this case, "allegorically," for equally ridiculous and unnecessary emphasis.
All songs (music and lyrics) written and performed by Monarcadia (Alaric W. Lopez).
I do not use DAWs for the construction of any sounds. Through a combination of sampler (loaded with sounds I've made from scratch), guitar, vocals, effects pedals, synth, and anything else nearby that produces sound, I construct what you hear. I make my own sounds and then tinker with them to build songs.
THERE ARE MOUSE-OVER LINKS NEXT TO EACH TRACK THAT SHOW YOU THE LYRICS. NOT TRUE IN THE BANDCAMP APP.
released June 27, 2014
Thanks to my brother Colin (Young Hound) for the voicemail chopped and sampled in track 4 (The Dark Singular).
Biggest thank you to Marisol for asking me to house sit for her, knowing full well that I would transform her bedroom into a mini recording studio while she was away. Thank you to Sugar the albino boxer for being my companion during this time.
